Welcome to the Scentsy Consultant's Library of Party Games:
Let's face it, we all want to be able to throw awesome parties! Not only do we want to have fun, but our hostess and her guests want to have fun too. And when they are having fun, we end up making a lot more money!
Here is a list of over 200 fabulous party games to choose from. There are also games listed below that are designed to help with the pre-party planning (helping the hostess get more guests or outside sales). But no matter which game you decide to use, remember, you can write your own rules here! Each and every one of these games can be customized to best suit your product or your personality. Remember, you can write your own rules here, so if you see an idea listed, don't hesitate to expound upon it and make it your own.
THE SCENTSY STORY GAME
By Mary Vose
AS THIS STORY IS READ, PASS THE Car Candle TO THE NEXT PERSON EACH TIME I SAY "SCENTSY" or a word with "Scentsy" in it.
Scentsy is a fairly new company and was started in Centerville, Utah, in July 2003, by Colette Gunnell and Kara Egan. Colette and Kara were two stay at home mom's looking for a safer alternative to candles. After some research and investigation, Scentsy was born! Within that first year, Scentsy was purchased by Orville Thompson, relocated to Meridian, Idaho, where it continues to grow very rapidly. Scentsy has experienced a 400% increase in each of its first three years of operation. Colette and Kara, remain very much a part of the company, as well as two Scentsational consultants, and two Scentsational stay at home moms.
Scentsy offers over 30 authentic Scentsy warmers and over 80 scentsational scents. Authentic Scentsy warmers and candle bars are only available through your Scentsy consultants. Scentsy is truly scentsational, and they make perfect scents.
Authentic Scentsy bars are individual bars of highly scented candle wax, made especially for authentic Scentsy warmers. They are leadless, wickless, flameless and smokeless. Scentsy candle bars will last at least 50 - 80 hours of "on time" in your hot Scentsy warmer.
Authentic Scentsy warmers are electric, and are heated by a 25 watt light bulb. This low watt bulb is hot enough to melt the wax, but not hot enough to burn you if spilled. Therefore you can leave your hot Scentsy warmer on 24 hours a day, as you practice safe scents! There is an on/off switch conveniently located on the cord. Hot Scentsy warmers also make excellent night lights!
You can have all the Scentsy warmers, and highly scented candle bars you want, by simply booking a scentsational Scentsy party. You can schedule a Scentsy party in your home, or take a Scentsy basket party to work with you. You can earn many free Scentsy products with the generous Scentsy hostess plan.
If you are interested in an unlimited income potential, you like people, and you love candles (especially) authentic Scentsy candle warmers, I will be happy to talk to you after the party about becoming a Scentsy consultant too!
Now, enjoy your scentsational Scentsy party, enjoy the other Scentsy guests, your scentsationally charming Scentsy hostess, and most importantly, your authentic Scentsy candle warmers, and the wide variety of Scentsy candle bars.

DO YOU NOW YOUR NEIGHBOR?
This game can be played either with guests answering the questions about the Hostess (have her leave the room while you ask questions), or with guests answering questions about each other (have them stand back to
back). Be sure you don't have any mothers and daughters or sisters together. Tell them to number their paper from 1-14. If there is an uneven number of guests, stand with one of the guests, so she'll have a partner. Ask the following questions and have them answer them on a sheet of paper. After all questions have been asked, have them return to their seats and mark their answers right or wrong. Most correct answers wins.
Variation to confuse guests: If you're going to ask the questions about the Hostess, carry around the room
to each guest a tray with several small household items on it, and have the guests look over everything on the
tray. (This is to distract guests from the real purpose of the game). Then have the Hostess go in another room,
and ask the following:
1. What color hair does she have?
2. How many rings does she have on?
3. What color clothing is she wearing?
4. How many children does she have?
5. Is she wearing a nylons?
6. How old is she?
7. Is she wearing shoes or sandals?
8. Does she have on earrings?
9. Is she wearing buttons?
10. Is she wearing a watch?
11. Does she have nail polish on?
12. Does she have a necklace on?
13. What type of television show does she like?
14. What color are her eyes?
15. What color is her hair?
EASY ADDING GAME
This little game is easy to do, You just add figures like 2 plus 2.
Multiply, subtract, or divide, more and more, there is a prize for the highest score.
I wonder who came here from afar,
Give yourself 5 if you came by car.
Were you on time? Not a minute late?
Punctuality pays, so give yourself 8.
A necklace gives you 5, and earrings 3,
Glasses are 9 more when they are on you,
10 points more if your eyes are blue.
Score yourself 5 if you show any pink,
But take away 10 if you left dishes in the sink.
Count all your buttons, each gives you 1,
Except if they're white, and then you get none.
Each bow is 1 point, but safety pins are taboo,
So for each one you're wearing, take away 2.
Open toe shoes are quite fine,
So, give yourself 10 if you are wearing that kind.
Now here's a chance to score you better,
Add 6 points if you're wearing a sweater.
1 Point for each year that you have been wed,
But take away 5 if your hair is red.
Now daughters are sweet, and on that we agree,
So for each one you have you may now add 3.
But when adding up points, boys are worth more,
So, for each one of your sons, go ahead and add 4.
If you kissed your husband or boyfriend today, add 12,
But into your personal life I must delve'
If you kissed them both you must subtract 20,
Because you're in trouble and trouble aplenty.
Now that's all there is, so total your score,
(Except if you're a special friend, there's more.)
It’s a 50 point bonus for V.I.P.
If you'll be a Hostess for Scentsy and me!
1. Give yourself 1 point for every year of your age.
2. Give yourself 25 points if you are wearing blue today.
3. Give yourself 1 point for every piece of jewelry you have on today.

10. Give yourself 10 points for EVERY credit card you have with you tonight and remember Scentsy accepts VISA, MasterCard, American Express AND Discover.
This is a rather peculiar game
It really does not have a name
It's simple to play as a game should be
You just do as you're told, you see
So now if you'll please give me your attention
We'll put an end to this suspension
In the end, whoever scores the most
Will receive a prize of which to boast
Now since you're all fashionable girls
Give yourself 5 if you have any pearls
You may add 3 if your toes peek out
And earrings will give you 2 more to shout
Score yourself 5 if you show any red
Add 6 more for a curl on your head
Now before you think you are going to win
Take away 2 for each safety pin
Give yourself 6 if your pants are tight
Add 1 for a scarf which is just about right
Add 5 more if your shoes are black
And take away 3 for a zipper in back
Now count all your buttons, for each you get 2
And take away 1 for each button that's blue
Give yourself 5 if your heels are high
And why not take 10 for the green in your eye
10 more points for a rose on your clothes
Take away 5 if you forgot to wear hose
If your husband you kissed today - add 9
If you didn't subtract 12 - you're subject to fine
This is the end...there isn't anymore
Who is the lucky lady with the highest score?
This is a most unusual game, it really doesn't have a name.
It’s as simple as a game can be, just listen and add your total and you will see.
You're fashionable and you live in a whirl, give yourself 10 points if you're wearing a pearl.
Give yourself 10 if your toes are peeking out, and earrings will give you another 10 to count.
Add 10 points if you're wearing red, And another 10 if there's gray on your head.
Now count those buttons, for each you get 3, and another 10 if you're showing your knee.
Oh Boy! Now for the big Hooray! 15 points if you kissed a man today!
Stop and listen, here's a stunner, subtract 3 points if you have a runner (in your nylons).
So you think you're going to win? Take away 3 for that safety pin.
If you cooked a mean and not heated soup, you earn 10 points and a merry WHOOP!

Hello, I represent _____, the _____ company in the world. We sell the _____ products. I am very pleased to be in this _____ home tonight. We must admit, we have a _____ Hostess. Of all the groups I have ever held a party with, you are by far the _____. And once again, I want to thank our _____ Hostess for inviting me into her home this evening. I am sure by the end of the evening, you will agree I am the _____ consultant you have ever met. I do hope that you have such a good time tonight you will invite me into your _____ home, so that you can receive some of our _____ merchandise free, too. Now I will continue with our presentation because afterwards, our _____ Hostess will be serving some _____ refreshments.
Have each guest introduce themselves by using a nice descriptive adjective which starts with the first letter of their name. For example: I'm delightful Dorothy. Each person, in turn, tells the names of the people before them and then adds their name and adjective. For example: Mary would say, "This is delightful Dorothy and I'm marvelous Mary." You can arrange it so the hostess is the last to name everyone and could receive a small prize.
1. Make up a set of index cards with numbers up to the amount of guests you expect to attend.
2. Have several items value $3 - $10 or more determined by the maximum amount of quarters you might collect you can always have people place two or more quarters in a container.
3. Each person gets an index card with the number written on it. Have a container with the numbers up to the amount you've handed out so you can pick a number for the winner.
4. Hold up and present the item that will be in the auction. Anybody wishing to participate may do so by
placing a quarter into a container and holding up their card.
5. You then draw a winning number. If the number you draw does not have their card up, continue drawing until someone with the card up wins.
*Note: You can tease them by saying: This number is higher than 5, has two digits, etc.
*Notes on Quarter Auctions:
1 This gets the hostess to call her guests and remind them about the party and to bring quarters.
2. You can donate any money collected to a needy children's group, church, etc.
Items needed- drawing tickets ( or pieces of paper ) and a basket to collect tickets in. And 4-6 wrapped prizes in another basket.
Having a long roll of tickets in your hand makes then more eager to get more then their friends do!!

Tell the guests that anyone who asks a question about the party plan or merchandise receives another ticket
Guests who book a party receive a ticket
Everyone who wants to describe an item on display receives another ticket - Have them come up and demo the item and hand them a ticket
Everyone with an order form receives a ticket (* You passed them out at he beginning of the party so everyone should have one!)
Everyone who put their name on the order form gets a ticket
Everyone who books a party with 2 weeks get a ticket
